Retiring President Mervin J. Kelly Speaks at MSM Homecoming Convocation To "come home" is one of the most heart warming phrases to our language. The campus of our Alma Mater is our academic home and returning to it is an occasion that is dear to all of us. More and more of our alumni are taking time out from their busy lives to return to the campus at the time of our Association's annual homecoming. There has been the largest registration of returning alumni this year in the history of our homecomings. Our President, Dr. Frederick A . Middlebush , Mr. Frank Mann, Chairman of the Executive Committee for the School and a member of the Board of Curators, and the past president of the Association, Karl Hasselmann, are unfortunately not with us today. They have been regular attenders over the past se veral years. Dr. Middlebush is in the east on national educational matters and sends his regrets an d wishes for a successful meeting. Mr. Mann planned to be with us , but illness has k ept him at home. Mr. Hasselmann was here yesterday and attended meetings of t h e Board of Directors but urgent business matters required him to fl y to Texas this morning. Weare pleased to have Mr. Allen McReynolds, until recently Chairman of the Board of Curators, with us again this year. All of us appreciate the warmth and cordiality of our reception by Town and Gown . The faculty and students and our friends downtown m a k e us feel welcome and completely at home. The y ear since we l as t met has been an unusually ,good one for the School and for the Association. From the many ite ms of progress a f ew might be m e nt.ione d. First for the School: 1. The largest class in history was graduated this year. The peak of the G.!. student wave was gradu a te d. The gra duating cla ss will continue to decre ase in size for the n ext few ye ars . 2. The n e w mechanical engineering l a bora tory is in u se . Professor Miles 'gave m e a tour through the l a bora tory thi s morning . Th e equipment a nd th e arrangem ents are s ple ndid. A t long last the M echa nica l Engineering D epartme nt has s pa ce and equipm ent t o implem e n t

it.s rigorous curriculum. 3. The new dormitory has been comple ted and is completely occup ied. This dormitory insures that for some time to come there will be adequate housing on the campus and in the town for all students. 4. The extension of the Metallurgy building is well along and before the end of this school year will be equipped for laboratory instruction. 5. Early this fall a committee of the Engineers' Council for Professional Development composed of distinguished faculty members from the outstanding engineering schools of our country completed an inspection of buildings and facilities and an examination of the curricula of our School. As a result of this inspection all engineering curricula are fully accredited by E.C.P.D. except for chemical engineering. The procedures in e valuating chemical engineering have not yet been completed. We are confident that upon their completion chemical engineering will also be accredited.



6. This one is not on the plus side . As was expected, the size of our School decreased this y ear. There are approximately 500 less s tudents on the ca mpus than in the second semester of last year. The Freshman Class was somewhat smaller than anticipated. However, this r es ult is in line with the experience of all engineering schools. The laI'ge number of G .l's who elected engineering traininf, brought the number of engineering graduates of the country to some 50 ,000 in the school year 1949-50. This large number ,has led to the pre diction of an excessive number of engineering graduates. These predictions have turned so many of our high school graduates into other areas of training that not more t han 12 ,000 engineers will be graduated in 1954 . It is significant that substantially all of the 50,000 engineering 'g raduates have been placed in technical work. While our economy could probably not provide adequate opportunity for that number of graduates in each year, certainly there has been a major overcorrection. The shortage of young engineers will be large. It will threaten the sound expansion of (Continued on Page 14)

By James L. Head F e llow Alumni: As a result of your balloting, a new set of officers and directors took over the conduct of your a lu mni association as of November 1. Bio·graphical sketches for the complete list appear elsewhere in this issue. On the ir behalf, I want, as your new President, to extend our most cordial greetings to our fe llow Alumni, express our deep appreciation for the honor you have conferred upon us and its implie d confidence in us and to assure you that we pledge ourselves w holeheartedly to further the interests of the School and the Association. We b elieve that these are y our interests al so . You w ill note that the Board ha s

been increased from 5 to 12 members so as to afford r epresentation from each of the nine a lumni areas, plus t h r e e D irector s-at-Iarge. Henceforth, the term of one-third of the Board is to expire each year, This w ill bring a steady flow of fres h thinking to our problems, yet insure a cert.ain continuity to the Board, By continuity I do not mean the perpetuation in office of any pa rticular group or clique, but rather a continuity of experience a nd the avoidance of sudden dis rupting changes in policy and practice, A f e w of u s h a ve a lread y had s ome e xperience in a lumn i affairs at the National level. The n ewco mers to the Board are there l argel y because of the ir fin e work at the Section le vel. It is to this latter l e vel that we must look for our fut ure l ead ers. Personally , I cannot help but doubt that I and my con tem poraries of the cerca World War I era, when M.S.M. had a

sma ll enrollment and its few graduates were widel y scattered, tru l y represent the thinking of the several thousand who have graduated since t h en from our unb e lievabl y ex panded Alma Mater . You have onl y to demonstrate your abil ity and willingness to wo rk and we w ill gl adl y let yo u ta k e over . Our b ig proble m is still t h e same as it h as b een since the reactivation of the Association in 1941 , a nd that is, pa id-up m e mbership. It has not k e pt pace with the unprecedented increase in the number of ou r graduates during the post-World W a r II years . Henr y E.

Meet the New Alumni President By F. C. Schneeberger, '25 Cul m inating a lo ng, contin u ous, period of service to the )VI.S.M. Alumni Association, and hi s Alma Mater, James L. " B abe" Head is el ected to the highest office the Alumni A ssocia tion h as at its disposal. Babe has been a constant Vice-President of the Association during the past many years. It has been on ly recently t h at he h as been ab le to arrange his affairs so th at he w ill have the time n ecessary to carr y out the many functions t his job enta ils. Having made those arr a ngements, h e was promptly rewarded with t h e elec tion to this important office. By virtue of Babe's somewh at fl ex ible territorial assignments ,h e pl ans to visit, frequently, all seclion s through out the country. H e al so p la ns to inaugu rate new Sec tions w h erever M.S.M. men are group ed in sufficient m em b ers. Babe's enthusia stic approach to alumni affairs, p lu s his willingness to do a n inte nsive travelling job makes him , indeed, a ·good ch oice for the job. Th e Alumni Association , and the Eastern Section esp ecially, owes much to Babe's consta nt stewardship. The Mining Club in New York has been the scen e of many fine functions where B a be always brou g ht the tempo up to a high pitch before h e passed-o ut the "mellow-touch" w hich provided tne f unds for continuing t h e idenity of that S ection. A.C.I.E. m eetin gs in New York were a l ways accompanied by the M .S.M . open- house feature , and Babe was a lways the motiva tin g force behin d these functions. Babe comes by his organizational flair r ath er hon estly, since h e was a combination of a "ram-rod" and a " joiner" while at Rolla. B iographicall y, he is a member of that r at h er voluble class of 1916. While in Ro lla, he h elpe d found the "Missouri Miner" and wa s its f irst editor . He was a ch arte r member and t h e f irst Regent of Iota Chapter of Theta T au. ( S t ill h as and wears hi s p : n! ). A lso, h e was on e of the orga nizer 's of SATYRS , a squareciancing Sophomore Socie ty which later b ecame in active b eca u se its includ e d w earing r equirements s h oes. Added to thi s h e wa s a m e m b er of Sig ma Nu wh er e h e was not clec ted Command er b e cause h e r e-

fused to r emove his mustache. In carrying out the m ath ema tics which determine cl ass-stan din g, it was d iscover e d after B abe left school , that h e was act u a ll y among t h e upper ten of his cl ass b y several d e cim al points. When this was (iliscovered he was initiated into Phi Kappa Phi which sel ects its m em- · bel'S wholly up on their scholastic standin gs . ·Babe was a 1st Li e utenant in t h e Engin eers during W orld W a r I. He was sent to Fra nc e, and at St. Nazaire h e was in charge of a rock quarry. This was apparen tly a commercial quarr y whic h was b e ing oper ated by the U. S . Engin eer s, and not the type of operation u sually found in the vicinities of State Ca pitols , etc. H e was al so superinten dent of Road s, Base S ection I w hile in France, where h e m ade all roads passabl e for foottraffic. It is inter esting to note that B abe has had a streak of Copper in his veins all throu gh his life. H e wa s born in D etroit, live d for a time in Indiana, and the n migrated to Moberly , Misso uri , where, as a boy , h e made a hobby of collecting Copper -h ead snakes. His interest in those r eptiles was to have an important b earing upon both hi s professional a nd frate r nal careers later on . Also, while a boy , he spent hours stirring, with a boat-oar, appl e butter which was cooking in a Copper k ettle . T he glitter of the copper always fasc inated him. The n when at the t urn of the Century, D. C. Jacklin g p u t l ow-gr ade Copper and M.S.M. on t h e map, Babe dec ided that h e was another Copper magnet in the making and fOrt~ l­ with selected Mr. J ackli ng's Alma Mater to further his interest in Copper.

After the war h e went to Rancaqua , Chile as a Mining Engineer fo r Brad en Copper Co. , r e mainin g there until 1921. After that, he was head of the Engineering offices of th e Cerro D e Pasco Copper Corp. , in P eru. In 1923 , the Chile Exploratio n Co., of Chuquicamata , Ch ile, employed him to dire ct their copper mining program. Durin g W ar II, h e worked as a do llar-a-day man for W.P.B. as Chief of raw materia ls a nd primary production in the Alumnin u m and Ma·gnesi um Division. Since 1945 h e h as bee n R esid e nt Engin eer for the Mining



a nd Exploration D epartment of the Anaconda Copper Mining Co., in N e w York. Among his many extra curricu lar ac tivities are : Director, America Institute of Mining arid Metallu rgica l Engineer s, Vice-President of the Mining and Metallurg ical Society of America , Chairman of t h e Board of t h e Engineering Societies Library, and a memb er of Engineer's J oint Council. Babe has a daughter 20 , who is an Art student in New York after h avi n g graduated from Colby Jun ior College. Also , a son who is a Midshipman in his S enior year at Annapolis. He r esides with Mrs. H ea d at D ougl as Manor L ong Is,l a nd N ew York f r om which place he commutes back and forth to hi s office in Lower Manhattan u sing only the fastest L ong I sl and ex press tra ins . He a lways carries a brief case which is buloging full of clip p ings and brochures cove ring the varioLls Alumni endowment plans promulgate d by Colleges throu ghout the country.

Gale Bullman, Associate Professor of Physical Education has writt en a s tory of this game which follows : Playing on a fi eld that was much more suitable for sledding, Missouri School of Mines from RoUa came from behind in the third quart er to nose out Illinois State Nornl.al , 7-6 , in the fourth annual Corn Supply Company, Marcy Mill Divi sion, Denver, Colorado as a m etallurgical engineer.

Bowl football game at Wesleyan's frigid stadium. It was ironic that Burridge, whose placekicking was largely responsible for ISNU's first undefeated regular season since 1907 couldn't hit on either the field goal try or extra point. Bill Wohlert, who had converted 20 of 25 previous Rolla extra points, toed the decisive point in the third qu a rter. It was no day for football , yet both teams did an amazingly good j ob of providing an interesting show. While their maneuverability was practically zero since neither team was equipped with ice skates, both elevens refused to go into their shells and play defensive football. Passes actually proved as good a risk as running and the Miners tossed 25 to ISNU's 16. Rolla completed ei'ght and Normal hit on five. Ground thrusts were of no avail, Missouri collecting only 17 net yards and the Redbirds seven. The numbing weather brought about a plethora of fumbles , with ISNU losing six of its nine bobbles. Rolla had better luck , falling on two of its three. It was punter Bill Koedding 's bobble which helped Normal snag a 6-0 lead in the first period. Koedding went back to punt on his own 21 , ten ya rds behind the line of scrimmage, but fumbled the pass (Con0nued on Page 15) ed. in that city for ten years in this capacity.

The August issue of " The Spirit" , a monthl y publication of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, reviews the book as follows: The book arrives at a procedure to be used in scientifically determining the most profitable location for any industrial plant, by considering the relative effect on unit costs exerted by the factors of raw materials, fue l and power, market a r ea, transportat.ion, labor , capital sources, laws, taxes, a nd technological requirements. By taking full adva ntage of geographic factors, a location for minimum overall delivered cost is indicated. The Zinc S melting Industry has been taken as a case study illustrating his proceedure_ This comprehensive survey of the United States Zinc Industry, a lthough secondary in the title , makes the book quite uniqu e in its fieldcorrelating for the first time the technolo.gy of zinc, fields of business, and geography of production ,

(Continued From Page 3) you r local section officers, or through the erstwhile president or secretary of your graduating class. You may recall that during the year 1950 , the By-l aws were changed b y referendum ballot to provide that every new graduate becomes automatically a member of the A ssociation, without payment of dues or without voting privileges, until October 31st of the year following the calendar yea r of graduation, and that for the subsequent year the annual dueg w ith voting privileges would be $3.00 Thereafter, the regul a r dues of $5 .00 would be in effect. Thus, the members of the class of '50 are considered paid-up members until October 31 , 1951. Members of the class of '49 are eligible to join for the same period for $3.00 and are being especially invited to do so. We confidently expect t h at this temporary sacrifice of revenue for the Association will result in ultimate gain through a greatly increased dependable membership . We are also sending a copy of this issue to all graduates and many former students whether paid up in 1949-50 or not. Your dues will help to make it a better publication. I coul d write at length as to reasons for active membership in your Association. Let me but quote from the introductory chapter to "A Primer of Alumni Work" by R. W. Sailor, one of the American Alumni Council's H andbook series: "The relation between the college and its a lu mni has been likened to a two-way street. It is not possible to produce and continue the alum-


nal relationship where all the going is in one direction. The college h as .. provided its graduate with his weapons for his life whether they be the profession in which h e is engaged , the general cultivation th at e nables him to understand ;mything that can be explained, or the pastimes and occupations that ena b le him, by simpl e introspection, to cast aside the worries and bothers of difficult situations and to find relaxation and respite within himself. These are three pricel ess contributions . "Neverth eless, it is merel y human that the alumnus, if successful, IT ight often b elieve that some of tfie el ements in his success were innate . . h e tends to fopget or minimize the part A l ma Mater had in nurturin g him. "The other way of the street is more obvious. A college must have a con sta nt fl ow of high-grade prospective students; and of g ifts, whether of art treasures or books, or of cash, buildings and lands . Above all, the flow must include thoughtful goodwill which will wa tch the interests of the college in such matters as friendl y publicity, the relief of tax burdens, and the protection from adverse l egisl ation and , in many cases , from th~ election of unfriendly r egents and other State officers ." Your n ew Board is happy and f ortunate for the support and cooperation of President M iddl ebush, Vice President Cowan and D ea n Wilson . R egistrar Noel Hubbard continues to carry the load of publishing the Alumnus. To them a ll I want to take this opportunity to expr ess our thanks. In " The President's Column" il). subsequent issues, I or my fellow officers and directors will discuss briefly the policies, aims and activities of the Assoc iation . We want to keep you informed. We will welcome your suggestions on any subject connected with the work of the School - and we will not dodge your brickbats. Cordially yo urs, James L.
